KNAPPOGUE 17YR IRISH WHISKY 750

This limited edition, Knappogue Castle 17-year-old single malt is marvelous. As part of the Twin Wood Selections, each bottle is numbered and signed by Mark Andrews III. We have come to expect superb quality from Knappogue Castle Irish whiskey, and this offering does not disappoint. It is a single malt, distilled 3 times in 1994 at the Bushmills distillery, aged for 15 years and 3 months in bourbon barrels then transferred into Oloroso sherry casks for 21 months. The rich, malty and spicy aromas begin with roasted nuts, cocoa, dried fig and lemon—very inviting. The palate is light, clean and sapid with flavors building from the aromas to include oily malt, black tea and pepper. The finish is where the sherry cask really shows off its impressive impact on this whiskey in lingering layers of fruit, malt, caramelized honey, oxidized nuts and dark chocolate. This whiskey is daedal and redolent with a taunting delicacy that invites you to savor it neat or an ice cube at most and definitely with time to enjoy it. Knappogue Castle was built in 1467 by the MacNamara clan to defend themselves against the invading Normans; now we can use this wonderful Knappogue Castle whiskey to defend ourselves from the the onslaught of mediocre whiskey.
